1. What do Occupational Therapists do?
Occupational Therapists work to empower their clients to participate in, and safely manage, their important Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). Occupational Therapists achieve this by modifying the environment, prescribing equipment, or advising on alternative techniques. Occupational Therapists may also advice on suitable services to support the person to achieve their care needs and goals.
2. What are ADLs?
ADLs = Activities of Daily Living.
The term ADLs refers to all of the activities that you need and want to complete, in order to manage in the home, community and school or work place. OTs work to assist clients to maximise their safety and independence in the performance of their necessary ADLs.
3. Do you have a waiting list
We work hard to see our clients in a timely manner, but do have a waiting list for new clients. We allocate new referrals to the most appropriate Occupational Therapist on the team, dependent on areas of experience, current case load, and geographical area. Please contact our office on 1300 855 513 to enquire regarding our current waiting list.
4. What geographical areas do you cover?
We have clinics in Corrimal (suburb of Wollongong) and Nowra, however we provide mobile Occupational Therapy services across the Illawarra, Shoalhaven and South Coast Regions. We can visit other areas on request.
